To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 1410), to request the South Carolina Department of Highways and Public Transportation to name the bridge on East Queen Street, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
SAMUEL R. FOSTER, for Committee.
TO REQUEST THE SOUTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF HIGHWAYS AND PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION TO NAME THE BRIDGE ON EAST QUEEN STREET IN PENDLETON IN ANDERSON COUNTY AS THE DEXTER GOSSETT MEMORIAL BRIDGE.
Whereas, Dexter Gossett of Pendleton served as mayor from 1958 to 1965 and again from 1971 to 1975; and
Whereas, Mr. Gossett also was the field man for the Anderson County Auditor's Office for eleven years and was also a former town councilman; and
Whereas, during Mr. Gossett's administration as mayor of Pendleton, the city had many improvements, including a sewer system, a town hall, a new post office with city delivery, extended water lines, and improved athletic facilities; and
Whereas, Mr. Gossett fought to improve the conditions for the citizens of Pendleton; and
Whereas, Mr. Gossett died on February 14, 1992; and
Whereas, it is appropriate that this distinguished gentleman be commemorated by a memorial bridge. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request the South Carolina Department of Highways and Public Transportation to designate and name the bridge on East Queen Street in Pendleton in Anderson County as the Dexter Gossett Memorial Bridge.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to his widow, Elizabeth Lawton Gossett, and to the South Carolina Department of Highways and Public Transportation.
